Davin is an observer of lines, colors and perspectives, moments loud and quiet. He finds magic in things that others pass by. He's self-taught in photography, shooting both film and digital, but studied Sociology, which taught him things aren't always as they seem. His attention to detail and the world around him naturally draws him closer to his subjects and content, which produces genuine and whimsical images.
Davin was raised in the middle of nowhere Michigan then moved to the middle of nowhere Los Angeles - he loves the two. He’s drawn to lakes and oceans and you’ll often find him near one of them.
When he doesn't have a camera, you'll find him lost in the wild- building something, skiing, camping or with family and friends around a fire. He loves to work with his hands and remodeling vintage trailers has been his means for that. Photography helps him join with people and working with his hands helps him join with the earth- these are both a journal for him. He desires a steady and quiet life: one full of simplicity and meaning.
Davin's commercial photography won the largest ad award in the city of Philadelphia in 2015. It has also been featured in publications and media by Delta, OtterBox, Will Leather Goods, Old Elk Distilleries, NASCAR, Comcast, Sanborn Canoe Company, Furniture Row Racing, Working to Give, and Azusa Pacific University.
He takes on a select number of weddings each year. To see his wedding portfolio, go to www.weddingsbydavin.com.

“To live content with small means. To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion. To be worthy not respectable, and wealthy not rich. To listen to stars and birds and babes and sages with an open heart. To study hard, think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions. Never hurry. In a word, to let the spiritual, the unbidden and the unconscious rise up through the common. This is my symphony.”
- William Henry Channing
